Description:
Premium Gem 1851-O Half Dime
1851-O H10C MS66 PCGS. Even though there was widespread melting of pre-1853 silver coins (as they were worth more melted than their face value), with 860,000 pieces struck, the 1851-O half dime is one of the more available issues from this era through MS64 condition. However, in Gem (and better) grades, this is a very challenging coin. Only one other piece has been so graded by PCGS with none finer (8/06). As with most New Orleans coins from this time period, the striking details are slightly less than complete over the highpoints. The surfaces are lightly toned on the obverse, and show uncommonly bright and attractive satiny mint luster.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 233J, PCGS# 4348)
